The F-bomb. That big of a deal?

I wonder why people get upset whenever they hear the word "fuck" on TV. It's just a word, and is it really something to get upset about? I know some people, parents especially, get upset whenever they and their kids hear the word "fuck" on TV, but whats the big deal, because it is not as if a kid is not going hear it from someone else like a friend, or someone walking down the street, or the parents themselves.

Common Sense has gone to the Nut House

This week a mentally ill murderer in California, who had tried to escape once before, was captured and brought back to the asylum from which he was locked up at after he escape on a field trip to a state fair. Let me repeat this, because it bares repeating. This guy is a insane murderer, who tried to escape before, and the doctors and the officials at the asylum that he was at decided it was okay to let this person go to a place that is crowded that he could, obviously now, easily slipped away the hospital workers that were suppose to be watching him, and literally be a danger to everyone. Do these people not have any common sense?

I want it Medium Rare

The lawmakers in this state passed a law a few years ago requiring restuarants not to cook beef rare or medium rare anymore? I guess the lawmakers did that because of fear of someone dying of food poisoning. I've got allot higher chances of dying because of someone at the bar who's knocked back one to many long island ice teas then I do from a hamburger with pink meat inside of it. I'm an adult, I can drink and smoke if I choose to, I don't need the government to tell me how to eat my steak.

Working on Sunday sucks, especially when you don't need to

I did my daily walk earlier and I saw something that I felt should not have been happening. The City of Roanoke was having some of it's workers tear up one of the streets to get it ready to be repaved. I don't have any problems with that, but I do have a problem with that being done on a Sunday. I would think that Sunday would be the one day the city wouldn't make anyone work unless it was one of those kinds of jobs where you needed people on the job 24/7. It's not right in my opinion.

Computers do not make things easier

Who ever said that computers would make our lives easier, was an idiot. That would only be true if the computer was enough to handle whatever programing was on it instantly and never had any errors, and as fare as I can tell, there is no such thing as a computer that does that, except for maybe the older ones from the 80's and early 90's. Even having one error can really piss a person off, but who has ever heard of a computer having just one error, unless they mean on error after another.

Parents and Bad Kids

Why can't some parents try a little harder to control their children's bad behavior in public places. There have been many times where my nerves have been rattled in a restaurant or some other public place because of some screaming kids who won't stop stop acting up. Whats worse is that many of these times their parents don't even try to take control of their kid's behavior, other than maybe telling them to stop it, which does not work, and sometimes they just let their kids run wild. Please parents, if your kid acts up in public, teach him or her to stop doing that.

Civility on the Internet

Is it just me, or does it seem that more and more people are losing all sense and civility when they come onto the internet. I understand why some people act differently over the internet, as they feel that they are more free to express themselves, but there is a fine line between being more open and negative, if not destructive behavior over the internet.

The Soap Box

This is my new blog site which I call "The Soap Box". This is not a place not long, endless blogs, but short rants that everyone would probably read. I will even try to have guests come on and share their own rants.
